The full list of albums proposed for the new round of 33 1/3 books has been posted to the series’ official blog, and it’s an interesting group! Besides the obvious choices, you’ll find things like a Wilco album that hasn’t been released yet, Garth Brooks’ Chris Gaines album, and a volume of Now That’s What I Call Music! Most striking are the albums that received multiple submissions: four for Duran Duran’s Rio, seven (!) for Slint’s Spiderland. At the end of the day, the writer probably matters more than the album, but this list represents at least some of what writers think you might want to read about. [33 1/3]
